Boo!

Damn! I was typing.

Trump is "working" in the Oval today, contaminating the place instead of staying in the family quarters. He just simply does not give a flying rat's ass about anyone but himself.

Dayraven - 07 Oct 2020 20:35:54 (#4 of 2696)

That comparison’s unfair to flying rats.

I think he does, at this point he considers contracting COVID or the willingness to do so, a sign of loyalty.

As some clever pundit pointed out, the polls may not be entirely reliable but they *will* push wavering rats to jump ship.

Trump campaign clearly running out of money and pulling ads in battleground states (which they're spinning as confidence):

I'm really posting this because the photo gives us a rare back view of the hairdo and shows that he is really v bald indeed on top.

Stop making Star Trek political!

Oh look, a Star Trek where a reanimated selfish self-important rich fuckwit from our time blunders into the important stuff, has a go at taking charge, and nearly gets everyone killed:

Derek Chauvin has posted $1m bail. Or someone has.

Trump's doctor claims he now has antibodies but it could just be the regeneron antibody cocktail he received.

How often do people charged with murder get bail?

dreams99 - 07 Oct 2020 21:47:55 (#14 of 2696)

I like veterans who don't die of Covid.

annetjie - 07 Oct 2020 21:50:04 (#15 of 2696)

I think I like presidents who do.

solomongursky - 07 Oct 2020 21:53:39 (#16 of 2696)

Tr*mp or his degenerates likely bailed him out to create a distraction. Remember, Tr*mp needs chaos to keep his base. He likely wants there to be more protests and disturbances to distract from all of his failures.

New England Journal of Medicine judgement on the administration's management of the pandemic:

https://twitter.com/jaketapper/status/131395191425
4569472?s=19


New England Journal of Medicine: "When it comes to the response to the largest public health crisis of our time, our current political leaders have demonstrated that they are dangerously incompetent."

"The federal government has largely abandoned disease control to the states. ... But whatever their competence, governors do not have the tools that Washington controls. Instead of using those tools, the federal government has undermined them."

The CDC "has been eviscerated and has suffered dramatic testing and policy failures." NIH has "been excluded from much crucial government decision making." FDA has "been shamefully politicized,.."

"...Our current leaders have undercut trust in science and in government, causing damage that will certainly outlast them..."

RIGGED ELECTION! will do nicely.

dreams99 - 07 Oct 2020 22:36:54 (#19 of 2696)

No way Trump has antibodies already:

10,000 posts in 2 months. It was always a busy thread, but it usually took 3 months to hit the 10k.
